Corrupted Keepsakes

 

KeepsakeBox

Our corrupted keepsakes—those self-inflicted injuries

Frozen in time—crystalized chronological capsules

Editorialized memories—renovated recollections

Obscured by that-is-the-way-it-should-have-been

Laundered to a state of that-is-how-I-want-to-remember-it

Substance and soul unite with the consciousness

Glossing over all the petty annoyances

Presenting brightly gleaming perfect bygones

Thus we cuddle ourselves in that comforting down

Like shattered prismatic shards

Comprised of imperfect recollections.
